Meet The Team

Deborah Rush
Medical Director

I am a wellness oriented provider; I do not view my clients as ill but rather as unique. I believe in the recovery model rather than the medical model; this focuses on being the best you can be rather than focusing on a "cure" for illness. I believe in the least amount of medication, for the shortest amount of time to maintain the highest quality of life. The patient is at the center of their plan and treatment must be collaborative between patent and provider. I am here to make a difference.

Lisa Hettenhausen

I have been a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist since 1995. I have a background in the addiction and recovery field (10 years). I currently work with individuals, children, and families. I often address depression, anxiety, and unhealthy expression of emotions. The modalities of treatment I most often use are Dr. Aaron Beck’s Cognitive Behavioral, Dr. Murrey Bowen’s Family Systems theory, and Dr. Irvin Yalom’s Group Therapy model. I have extensive experience implementing group therapy and am currently facilitating a weekly Women’s Process Group and a weekly Co-Ed. Stress Management group.

     In my free time, I enjoy spending time in the mountains and watching independent movies. I consider it a privilege to assist others in practicing good self-care that contributes to their mental and physical well-being.


I graduated in 2003 from Boise State University. I specialize in several things, including case management and community advocacy, with a specialty in social security disability regulations. I have work several years as a case manager and disability advocate. 


I have also had the pleasure of providing individual counseling to adults and teenagers. I like to join with others on their journey to improved mental health. A special emphasis has been working with those that are adjusting to disabilities or providing care for family members with disabilities.
